Michelle K. Pickett


I'm the young and new adult, cross-genre author of the award winning "Unspeakable." I love to read and write, and eat way too many peanut butter M&Ms while I do both. I'm originally from Flint, Michigan, which means I say "Pop" not soda, and "you guys" instead of the typical ya'll used in my new home state of Texas. Although I love the balmy winters of Texas, I'll always think of the Great Lakes state as home. I love to hear from readers, bloggers, and other authors, so drop me a note and say "Hi."

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I remember writing something about The Flintstones when I was a child. As an adult the first story I finished was Concilium, an adult urban fantasy. PODs was my debut young adult title.
How do you approach cover design?
I usually pick a pivotal scene in the book, or an overall theme, and get my inspiration from that. I outline what I'd like to see on the cover and then hand the reins over to my cover designer. I listen closely to their ideas because they know what will look nice and also the trends in design. So far I've been lucky to work with some awesome cover designers.
